You could say I am an overly emotional person, and I wouldn’t be able to deny that. I can cry watching a commercial or listening to a sappy song on the radio. With that, personal connections are pretty important to me. I have to constantly connect with my loved ones in one way or another, but in reality, it can be easy to let the little moments slip away. I have been trying to remind myself of the importance of my emotional heart and well-being in relation to my connection with my husband and loved ones. Having soft, healthy skin helps me feel more confident when creating touching moments.
My husband and I don’t get the opportunity to go out and eat a quiet dinner that often so when my parents offered to watch the kids last Saturday evening for a few hours, we couldn’t say no. After a nice dinner and quality, kid-free time with my husband, we decided to go to Sam’s Club. I know, not an ideal date night, but it goes so much quicker without three little ones. One of the many things I purchased was a 2pk of NIVEA Essentially Enriched Lotion. I couldn’t pass up the value since it was under $9 for two bottles. A lotion for very dry skin is perfect for me, especially during these chilly winter months. I have to make a point to use it at least once a day.
I always put my three little ones first and tend to forget about ‘me time’. Each morning before they get up, I have been carving out some time for myself for a change (instead of cleaning or prepping for breakfast). Using NIVEA lotion on a daily basis is important to achieve soft healthy skin so I keep a bottle of NIVEA out on the counter so I always have easy access to it each morning.
The power of touch can be easily be forgotten. Especially when my husband works long hours and we both have had stressful days. Since I have been taking care of my skin, I want my husband to notice it as well. I try to make it a point to reach for his hand when we are sitting on the couch together or give him a hug when we are walking past each other. That touching moment is more than a little gesture, it reminds us of our love for each other and gives me that personal connection I need.
Don’t forget to hug a loved one today or hold their hand. Create your own #NIVEAMoments.
